How to recover lost or deleted or formatted data from LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt external hard disk

Format drive recovery software for recovering photos, pictures, videos, Word documents, Excel, PDF and other files from formatted LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt external hard disk.

The LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt offers great performance, USB 3.0 support, and is rugged and competitively priced. The Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt that LaCie announced today is the third bus-powered Thunderbolt drive to hit the market and the second one that also supports USB 3.0. Its two contenders are the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD, which is the very first Thunderbolt drive that's bus-powered, and the recently reviewed Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt HD-PATU3 that also supports USB 3.0.

The LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt still manages to be a first, though: it's the first bus-powered, USB 3.0, portable Thunderbolt drive that uses a solid-state drive (SSD) as its storage. It comes in a single capacity of 120GB, but the drive is also available in a standard hard-drive version that offers up to 1TB of storage.

The new LaCie Rugged USB 3.0 Thunderbolt is a nice surprise, considering that the other SSD-based Thunderbolt drive the company released more almost a year ago, the 120GB Little Big Disk Thunderbolt SSD, was one of the most expensive drives on the market. The new drive, on the other hand, arguably is one of the most affordable, and it even includes a Thunderbolt cable, which would be another $50 if you had to buy one separately. The drive also comes with a standard USB 3.0 cable.

Hard disk recovery is possible because of data remanence, which means that some data continues to exist on the hard disk drive even after it has been deleted. While data remanence is beneficial to hard disk recovery, there is also a downside; that is, data remanence is one of the most convenient tools used in cyber-espionage. That's why computer security experts tell you that simply erasing a file doesn't always completely delete it.

When a file is deleted, the operating system marks the file name with a character that informs the computer that it has been deleted. The deleted data is actually still on the hard diskdrive until the file system overwrites it, but the operating system can no longer access it. The process of hard disk recovery finds the data that the operating system is unaware of, but still exists in individual clusters on the hard disk drive. However, clusters that have become corrupted or physically damaged cannot be recovered.
